Japanese student group returns to the Capital College

Edinburgh College was recently delighted to welcome back students from the Immaculate Heart College in Kagoshima.  As a part of a continued partnership, the College saw students from the Southern Japanese college complete a bespoke English and Airline Operations course – specifically designed to support their aspirations of forging careers in the airline industry after graduating.

English language classes included tailored sessions aimed at improving English in a Tourism context, while practical Airline Operations classes included workshops on ground operations, cabin crew, and customer care. During these classes, the group honed their skills using the College’s mock aircraft cabin which provided a life-like setting for their learning.

The 2024 cohort also took part in a social programme organised by the College. This included visits to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the National Museum of Scotland, the Royal Yacht Britannia, as well as trips further afield including to Glasgow, the Museum of Flight and North Berwick, and Glenkinchie. The group stayed with local homestay hosts during their time in Edinburgh, which further developed their English language skills by creating an immersive environment for students.

It has been a pleasure to welcome back the students from Immaculate Heart College in Kagoshima. The students had a fantastic attitude and fully integrated themselves into life at Edinburgh College, learning valuable industry specific skills that will help them pursue employment in the Airline Operations and beyond. Edinburgh College continues to work with partners and students internationally, demonstrating our commitment to industry led learning and contributing to our own growth as a provider of exceptional vocational learning experiences.
